    Great idea for a challenge @HeatherB - it's so important to document these things. However, I've found that after they get through the baby and toddler years, it has become less and less of a thing for me to capture those firsts. Your challenge prompted me to capture this one!

    I assure you that the special moment did happen but we're not at liberty to divulge it yet.

    Journaling reads
    Retirements are a big deal in so many ways of course, especially from the military. This was the day that my dad retired after 24 years of service in the Air Force. I was in college, and it was a day that really impacted me. Growing up, I appreciated that my dad served our country, I was always so proud of him for what he did to serve others. There was never a doubt about that. But sitting there as I was at the very beginning of just dreaming of starting my career, life on my own in the near future the impact of just what his career meant really took hold on me. It wasn’t just about the years of service, it was about the dedication each day to be sure he showed up for those he served with, for those who counted on him. He showed up for his family, for the families of those who he served with for the families of others who he never knew. He sacrificied time at home, time with us not because he wanted to be away but so that there was freedom. Freedom for me to have my career choices wide open, a voice to be heard even when I disagreed with him on social or political issues. Then I sat waiting to give my small speech, I listened to others speak of the accomplishments my dad had in his career - so many things I had no idea about, so many things that left me speechless. Overwhelmingly though, it was his character and his committment to his people that had the greatest impact on everyone that spoke.

    This was a pivotal moment in my career, just a couple of weeks ago.
